Day 27. - Garden Fresh...As Good as it Gets!
Home gardening allows you to enjoy the best tasting fruits/vegetables all year round in every regional setting.
Growing your own food is not just good for the environment, it is good for you in many ways. Healthier gardening practices allow you to control the food exposures and minimize transportation and storage at stores...and it just tastes better when you
grow it! Along with many other helpful tips to assure your garden is a success, local garden stores can help you pick the best foods for your region and the correct season to grow them. Figure out the best place and size for a backyard plot and decide
whether you want to start with seeds or seedlings.
No yard? Not a problem. Indoor gardening , porch gardening, or community gardens where you and your neighbors participate together in growing fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs and flowers are possible alternatives . If there is no community garden, but
neighbors want to collaborate through assigning specific foods for growing, a large variety of fresh foods are possible.
Reasons to start a garden:
Freshest food possible
Helps to keep you fit
Garden grown foods are healthier
Less need to drive to the store
Sense of accomplishment
Food costs less when you grow it
